Password change / expire

Dear Experts,

I have this situation and need help with a resolution please.  We have multiple small offices with their unique identities and domains:
- north.local
- south.local
- east.local
- west.local

Issues:
- all staff at these offices use a single e-mail domain "user@company.com"
- no trust relationship can be established or allowed between the *.local domains and "company.com" domain, and hence,
- users at the *.local never get prompt to change their passwords when it's about to expire.  

Is there a way to can set things up so that users at the remote offices get alerts or prompts when their passwords about to expire?  Please advise.

Windows 2008 R2/2012 R2 domain | Exchange 2010
